Sherlock Bone CSI
Sherlock Bone is a great company to work with. They arrive with a range of equipment that has the children buzzing before the workshop starts. The tutors are experienced and knowledgeable and able to handle the practical sessions and answer student’s questions.
The CSI Workshop is a great way to develop thinking skills, confidence and team working. The students listen, explore and practice a whole range challenging practical skills including handling real bones and skeletons, finger printing and testing ‘blood’ samples. The event is held together through a mystery story to make an informative and interesting day.
Redcar & Cleveland CU
Sherlock Bone delivered a programme of forensic science activities for Sheffield Children’s University in the Winter Gardens in Sheffield as part of the Off The Shelf festival.
We had loads of children, young people and families get fully engaged in looking at and holding parts of the human skeletons. It was wonderful to see their faces light up (and sometimes squirm!) when they realised they were REAL! They quickly developed a very real understanding of the skills and techniques used to collect forensic evidence from a crime scene to determine the identity of the skeleton and the story behind their death!
The workshops were led professionally and in a fun, exciting way which engaged a wide variety of people which can otherwise be quite daunting and confusing.
Thanks to Sherlock Bone for a great couple of days. Had fun and learnt lots!!
